3 yrs - Worked in a startup (based out of Bangalore) which operated in the private company research space and provided boutique consulting to PE/IB clients. Joined as Analyst in 2014, got promoted twice in the first two years and moved on from the company as Lead analyst (was involved in managing a team of 10 analysts who were Indian MBA grads). I held multiple roles in the startup from investment research to product management to internal org strategy and helped in scaling the startup from 10 to ~300 employees.

Post MBA Goal – Management Consulting / Strategy Consulting specifically in the area of Org strategy & cost optimization

I am planning to apply for Tepper, Ross, Mccombs, Duke (these imo are moderate for me), Wharton, Booth, Stern (these imo are ambitious for me) - all in R2

Hi there,

Thanks for posting. Things look solid from the limited info here about your professional profile and EC involvement. GMAT is respectable though not outstanding, and grades the same/could be higher. In terms of what you can DO to improve your profile, if applying this year there is not likely too much more you can do (unless a GMAT retake is an option if you think you could get to say 740/750), but you can focus on presenting your story effectively in your applications, showing all that you would bring to a class, why your perspective might be more valuable than other similar applicants, why the MBA will benefit you, a clear goals plan, and why that particular school is a good fit. That will make the difference! I agree with your school list assessment with the caveat that the schools may even be more difficult than you indicate due to the sheer competitiveness and numbers of similar applicants. I would agree with Rotman as safer but HEC will still be difficult. Focus on quality applications, good luck!
